Fusional languages

I just checked Wikipedia for some typology terms.  The examples given of
fusional languages were Latin and German.  Latin I am quite familiar with,
so I understood well enough what was meant by the "tendency to 'squish
together' many morphemes in a way which can be difficult to decode."

I am curious whether fusional languages are a largely Indo-European
phenomenon, or whether they are found widely outside of the IE family?
