You should look at a construction call the Hyperreal numbers where we assume that there exists a number $\epsilon \gt 0$ such that $\epsilon \lt r$ for every real number $r \gt 0$.

The Hyperreal numbers are a tool for pursuing a more intuitive approach to real calculus. In particular they do not exist in Real or Complex Analysis. Real calculus using the Hyperreal numbers is called Non-Standard Analysis. They are not used more widely because Hyperreal algebra is inconsistent (as far as I am aware).
